joins us again this morning. steve, we actually finally start the meetings today. we've had comments out from the russian finance minister, as well. what's he saying? >> well, he's trying to get us back on track on to a growth agenda, which when you look back at what the agenda was a couple of meetings ago back in toronto in 2010, that was sorely missing. that was about harboring deficits and having firm targets. it hasn't really worked, has it? what they've said is our growth estimates were slightly optimistic. listening to what some of the policymakers are saying this time around, the likes of mario draghi, i'm scratching my head a little bit. there's some uncontentious stuff. i can live with that. range of financial market indicators showing situation normalizing. but what about this bit? currency chatter is inappropriate, fruitless and self-defeating. hang on a second, mr. draghi. it wasn't us, the journalists that started this. it was policymakers. it was the g- 7. it's incestble we're going to start rumbling about this. i can't help but thinking mr. draghi is missing the point here
of this kind of imminent threat, it requires me being off u.s. soil. >> right. there's a big distinction here, that's important to talk about. this memo only applies in situations where an american citizen is in a combat area. not even -- they can't do it in the streets of london. the memo talks about in a place that is essentially a war zone. >> but we don't have a declared war against these places. >> we do have authorization of use of military force against al qaeda. that's -- >> the zones. >> those are the areas. you know, yemen, afghanistan, formerly iraq, that's where we use those powers. but you talk about your phone calls, you have a -- they need a warrant to listen to your phone calls in the united states. but if you call yemen, they don't need a warrant. >> they can listen. what about mali, is that considered to be a place where, if you're planning an attack against me and you're safe, from i don't know, poughkeepsie, they can take you out there? >> the memo doesn't deal with na directly but you can bet the answer is yes. mali -- anywhere where we think al qaeda mig
. >>> and it is something, nof course a lot of us worry about when we travel. are we going to be safe. for us women it's a concern. the allegations of a gang of armed men raped six spanish women visiting the resort city of acalpulco. elizabeth is in l.a. what do we know about what happened, first of all? then we'll get the reaction from the mayor. >> hi, suzanne. a horrifying attack, as you described it, what we know at this point, according to local media reports, six spanish women raped inside a condo staying near the beach resort and seven men tied up with cell phone cables. now, as you mentioned, the mayor just reacted, saying that this is definitely horrifying, condemned the attack, but said it's something that could happen anywhere in the world. we also know that the spanish ambassador is in contact with the victims. at this hour they're not specifying exactly where they are but they have told us they have received medical attention and taking care of them, as we speak. but certainly horrifying details, these tourists reportedly staying at a condo, no motive why the attack. of course the hunt, t
of the subcommittee. i am looking forward to working with the ranking members as we both share a commitment to u.s. border security and ensuring our board agents -- ensuring our border agents receive the support they need to protect homeland. also look forward to a strong bipartisan cooperation in helping to make the department of home as security as efficient and effective as possible. i would also like to introduce our new freshmen majority members. we have mr. richard hudson of north carolina. later joining us will be stephen from montana. they bring a welcome experience to their new roles in congress and the subcommittee. i look for to leveraging their experience and knowledge to provide effective oversight of hds. -- of dhs. i think the subcommittee staffer diligently working together to put this hearing together. thank you for that. i now recognize myself for an opening statement. next month marks 10 years since the creation of the dhs with the homeless security act of 2001. the attacks on september 11 forced to rethink our approach to defining the homeland. as the commission report document
of us that don't like citizens united have our questions about anybody pouring all that money in any ways. however, if you are going to be able to do it, this is doing it to make a very effective point, and he really has forced gun control into that race as perhaps the central issue, and i think when we take a step back, yes, you are quite right. i was talking about that beast with two heads metaphor in my head. you are quite right. we are moving in different directions, but in 20 years it's been 20 years since we had this much pressure to pass sane gun laws, and i think we always have to keep our eye on that big thing. as katrina mentioned, there is an extremely good chance that we're going to get universal background checks. there is a decent chance that we will get a ban on the big magazines. there is a pretty good chance that we will get new gun trafficking laws. the nra for the first time in a very long time, maybe forever, is really playing defense, and that's an astonishing shift in this debate. >> can we talk about why that is? you remember, alex, when we were on this set whe
it. it take us four years to get panama and south korea done. it was on the bush table. it took four years to negotiate and we didn't get anything else new. those trade agreements would do all kinds of things for exports. >> are you at all nostalgic about -- ge out of nbc and comcast is running it well. >> comcast has done a great job. look, the market said good for both companies. the market said comcast got a great bunch of assets. ge has more cash to do things with. time and men's fortunes change. you go with the flow. >> every time they do a deal, they say it's great for both parties. stock goes up in one case and down in the other. ge is in one, can use the money, comcast in another and actually worked. >> worked out well. comcast has a great set of assets now a ge has cash to invest in what they want to do. we all do it differently in our times. >> jack, we love you, on valentine's day especially. >> happy valentine's day. >> merger thursday with all these deals. huge day on wall street. almost $100 million in fees for the banks. center view bank. >> make sure you join us tomor
news faster, we will turn to jackies sizzle who joins us live. >> they're not going to have classes' here today because of this investigation. they're still trying to determine what happened and there are a few details that are coming out right now. we just spoke with someone from alameda police department and they stated that about 8:45 p.m. they received a call about fires being shot on this street. ted that when they arrived they discovered that one victim had a gunshot wound and that they were transported to a hospital where he died of his injuries. there is not a lot of descriptions for the victim. he was a young adult and that is about it for right now. because of the time of when that happens crime scene investigators were out but obviously they were waiting to get a break to come so that they can investigate more. this is why the schools will remain closed for today. you will see that there will be a search of the grounds and that we will have canine units out. they will do a real search. >> this is what we're seeing out here right now within the last 15 to 20 minutes more r
't giving up yet. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." cutting our pay. that's how one u.s. officer says u.s. troops view the recommendation for a smaller pay increase in 2014. no one goes into the military to get rich but most servicemen and women need every dollar in their paycheck. so worried that next paycheck may be smaller is not going over well among the troops. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has the details. she's working the story. barbara, what's going on? >> wolf, in this town, there's nothing that causes more anxiety in budget politics than the concept of cutting the pay for the troops. but that is exactly what is on the table if congress and the president cannot reach an agreement on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defen
that is also suing the government. chief washington correspondent james rosen tells us what triggered the change. >> under the new rules proposed by health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius non-profit religious employers will be able to opt out of the obamacare mandate of female contraceptive in the healthcare plan. instead insurers will be required to provide coverage, including standard birth control and items like the morning after pill. the white house says the modifications meet president obama's overarching goals. >> we had to ensure the women have access to preventative services like contraception. the policy also respects religious beliefs. >> catholic league bill donahue held the announcement as a sign of good will toward the catholic community. because the private sector firms with religious objections are not covered by the proposal and many insurance firms are apt to shift the absorbed cost back to employers anyway, even if they are not for profit, catholic schools, charity or hospitals, all other groups dismissed the latest h.h.s. move as window dressing. >>
assessment of what went wrong and what exactly happened. >> i know you're trying to get us the actual details here. what do we know about his girlfriend, reeva steenk. mp? . >> reporter: i was just on her twitter page and it's quite sad to read the twitter page of somebody who died just a few hours ago. on it she describes herself as a model, a law graduate and a child of god. what we do see through her twitter feed is that it appears she went to a promotional party last night for a car launch and a lot of people were excited. there's a picture of her up there. she's a very beautiful blond woman and she was also just recently in the celebrity pages of one of the sunday newspapers. the couple were a bit of a celebrity couple here in south africa. we do know that. in terms of what happened, what transpired, it's tragic either way. one family has lost a sister, a daughter, of course, oscar pistorius, the big question now is the implications for his career. he was supposed to race in march. it's highly unlikely he'll be taking to the track by then. >> do we know if steenkamp and pistorius lived t

. it has a lot to do with the the makeup of society. help us understand how judges are schooled to deal with cases without the aid of a jury. >> in south africa we believe that judges spend their entire working lives being immersed in the law and trained in the law and schooled towards being objective in applying their minds to the facts in the law in a neutral way. and that is the safeguard for justice. we also every aspect of our legal system is imbued with our constitution and our constitutional law. and the constitution itself really was a very collaborative process that is an expression of the people of south africa. in that prospect, they have a voice in the law and an influence in the law, but not in terms of deciding individual cases. >> mark, as you and i talked about, the magistrate commended pistorius for offering this very, very complete and thorough affidavit. his version of the events for the record. he even said it helped him in making his decision to grant him bail. couldn't that come back to haunt him? >> absolutely. they made the calculated decision. they said this cas

johnson signed the law in 1965, americans of color get that right and states, like yours, could not use tactics to undermine it. he explained the importance of section five best on in the speech saying the heart of the act is plain. wherever by clear and objective standards, states and counties are using regulations or laws or tests to deny the right to vote, then they will be struck down. it is clear state officials intend to discriminate. the federal examiners will be sent in to register all voters. when the process of elimination is gone, the examiners will be withdrawn. for the first time millions of african-americans could vote without undue influence or violence. let's be honest about a few things. first, 1965 was not that long ago. even if the images are in black and white, it's around the corner historically. and the redistricting plan was as recent as 2006. the process that will unravel or sustain a key act begins. the way the supreme court decides is vitally important and could leave many americans, particularly americans of color with less right to vote. there's a lot to unpa
